The Dell XPS 13 9300 is, on paper, one of the best thin-and-light laptops you can get today. Here are my thoughts after three months of use.
Galaxy Note10+ Long-term Review: Still a Good Choice in 2020
The Galaxy Note 10+ was released some nine months ago. It has since been eclipsed by newer phones such as the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Google Pixel 4 XL, OnePlus 8 Pro and the myriad offerings from Xiaomi. Still, if you’re on a lookout for a capable Android phone today, the Note10 or Note10+ are still two of the better options out there.
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14 (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U) Review – Great Specs, Great Price
AMD’s third-generation (confusingly named the Ryzen 4000 series) mobile processors are finally here, and the IdeaPad 5 is probably the first Ryzen 4000-equipped model to reach our shores, courtesy of Infinito Atrix which is selling the laptop for S$1,398. There was a time sale, however, and I managed to snag it for just S$1,250.
Lenovo Yoga S740 Quick Review: Good on Paper, Flawed in Use
On paper, the Yoga S740 is just about the most value-for-money premium laptop you can find in Singapore. At S$1,999, it comes equipped with a 14″ 4K HDR display, Thunderbolt 3 with Power Delivery support, the latest Ice Lake Core i7 processor with Iris Plus graphics and an additional Nvidia GeForce MX250 to boot, 16GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe PCIe storage. This undercuts its main competitors–the Acer Swift 5 (S$2,198 for a similarly-specced machine but without a 4K display), the HP Spectre x360 (S$2,899 but with pen support) and the Dell XPS 13 (S$2,699 to S$2,899 for a similarly specced machine).
Christmas on Orchard Road 2019 — A Rather Muted Christmas
Following criticism that last year’s Christmas decorations were too commercialised, the Orchard Road Business Association has opted for a more traditional feel this year.
Zoff: Cheap and Good Prescription Sunglasses
The eyeglasses market in Singapore has become a really crowded space in recent years. Zoff seemed like yet another Owndays wannabe until I discovered their unique selling point–really cheap prescription sunglass lenses.

The last of the “Holy Trinity” of malls in Paya Lebar is finally complete.
A Cashless Society and its Growing Pains
I was in Guangzhou this August when I realised first-hand how painful it was to have only cash with you.
Funan — A New Beginning
Funan has finally reopened its doors on 28 June, nearly three years to the day it was closed for redevelopment.
MCO Visa Card — A Card for the Crypto-Curious
Much has been written about the MCO Visa Card in recent weeks and months–cue possibly sponsored reviews by The Travel Intern and The Vulcan Post. What is the MCO Visa Card all about, and should you even consider getting one?
BlueSG — Car Sharing for the Masses
When BlueSG first came on the scene in late 2017, I thought it was a model doomed to fail. Costing between 0.33 to 0.5 cents per minute, it felt like a total rip-off compared to hourly car rental services such as Smove and TribeCar.
